RATINGS

93Robert M. Parker Jr.

...sweet, rich, thick, juicy fruit, and the full-bodied, gorgeously pure, intense personalities of these two outstanding wines...superb nose of cassis, Provencal herbs, cedar, and truffles...displays fabulous richness, a sweet mid-palate, expansive, chewy, gorgeously pure flavors, and a long, knock-out finish...

90Wine Spectator

This explosive wine shows the exuberant fruit flavors and toasty oak accent of a California red with its blackberry, cassis, licorice and spice flavors. Delicious, in the international style.

REGION

France, Provence, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence

Provence is the region on the Mediterranean coast of southeastern France known for sun-drenched Lavender fields and an easy-going, gracious attitude toward life. Until the last few decades it was also known for producing large quantities of unremarkable rosé, often sold in bulk. Today its most famous wines are still rosés, but their quality has improved dramatically. Notable red wines are also being made in Provence, particularly in Bandol, a tiny appellation east of Marseille. The largest appellation is Côtes de Provence. Other appellations include Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence, Côtes du Luberon, Cassis, Bellet, Palette and Les Baux de Provence. Red and white wines are made throughout the region, despite the attention paid to rosé. Red wine grapes grown in Provence are Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and some Cabernet Sauvignon. White wine grapes are Clairette, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Bourboulenc and Ugni Blanc.
